We all raves about our meals and the service was excellent. The dining room was very pleasant and we were able to have nice conversation. I would definitely recommend 618 to our friends.

Had a fabulous night at 618 with some good friends. We have all been there previously. We love this restaurant. For some reason last night was even more exemplary from the very moment we walked in. We were greeted by the lovely Deanna. Her warmth and charm was so delightful. She is a gem. We had Dennis as our server. He was wonderful. Very attentive and knowledgeable about everything on the menu and also the wine list. The food and drinks were excellent. The general manager Chuck was also so nice as well. I can not wait to return.

Beautiful restaurant with amazing food. The menu is filled with unique twists on classic dishes. We had stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer which was delicious. Our entrees were the short rib ravioli and the pork chop which was the most moist and tender piece of pork I have ever eaten! From the waiters to the host all the staff members were welcoming and had extensive knowledge of their menu. This is my second time dining and I will be back for a third and fourth!

We went for an early lunch and for the first half of our meal we were the only ones there. The service was amazing, drinks were great, and food was super delicious. Also, they start happy hour at lunch time and pricing was insanely good!!

The best restaurant in NJ!!! From the bread and butter to the apps/dinner/dessert the food is always fresh, flavorful and unique. The entire staff from Hostess/Bartenders/wait staff are always at the top of their game. Been here about a dozen times and never have I been disappointed!!

The service and food was great! Probably one of the best waiters I’ve ever had. The ambience was eh. Very noisy but what disturbed us the most was there was a party going on upstairs. Every beat of the music upstairs I felt through my soul. Hard to eat dinner that way. Maybe go on a night there is no party upstairs.

James, our server was excellent. He gave us good service. My dinner was ok. will not order that dish again. The meat was slightly overcooked; the fries nearly burnt; the sauce was not authentic or tasty. Disappointed with this dish.

The food was outstanding, the only thing better than the meal was the service. The flavor, presentation and size of the portions were as expected and more. Our server Matthew added to the evening by excellent service.

My 4th visit to 618 & it did not disappoint. Chef was trying out a new dish, pounded veal chop parmigiana, NOT your traditional veal parmigiana. It was amazing. We were fortunate enough to have Rick as our server...he is the absolute best! My son & daughter-in-law said this will be their new"go to" spot when they're down from CT.

Went here for lunch and had a fabulous time! Sat in the bar area and it was very nice with a modern rustic theme (ha, yes, sounds like an oxymoron, but it looks great:). Not loud a place, but it was only lunch time, so maybe louder in the evening. Drinks were delightful and the food was fresh, fun and creative. The highlights were the delicious flatbread and toffee cake, yum! Service was very nice and attentive. Great all around meal!

My chicken Milanese was good the first couple of bites but there were several (about half of the piece) that were chewy. I should have sent it back but I was hungry and it took our meals to come out a long time.

Service was excellent. Rick was our server. Food was good. I had the branzino which was a very generous portion but a little dry and a little tasteless. Would go back

It was our first anniversary. The entire staff was AWESOME especially Jaime who was our server and later on our bartender. After our delicious meal we stayed at the bar. We had such a great experience that we didn’t want to leave. The food was better than outstanding! Will definitely be back. Highly recommend this establishment!!

We had a great experience! From walking in the door being greeted by smiling hostesses, our server (Dani) with some great suggestions and insights, and the owner (Matt) stopping by to see how everything is!
My wife had the pappardelle bolognese, my daughter the porterhouse steak special and I had the espresso rubbed filet entrees. I have had more than my fair share of NYC Steaks, and these were as good as any I have had in NYC, definitely quality meats!
We also had the cajun BBQ shrimp & grits, stuffed mushrooms, and short rib ravioli appetizers.
Each and every one of these dishes, you could tell was made from quality ingredients.
Ohh, I almost forgot the handcrafted cocktails! (thank you Dani for the suggestions!)
You must try 618 if you are tired of the same old, consistently average restaurants!
TREAT YOURSELF AND YOUR FAMILY TO SOMETHING GREAT!
618 is definitely in our top restaurant rotation ;-)
